We went there tonight without a reservation, with a stroller and a 4 month old baby. We were made to feel very welcome even when we took a lot of place with the stroller and had an amazing dinner with some great Swiss wine. Highly recommended, fantastic staff!!

Everyone brags about the Bistrot for its Lyonnais cuisine. Yet to be honest I did not find so spectacular. Service is nice, food OK, cute settings. Nice in the winter.

Big fan of this restaurant. All the food is made on site from bread to rillettes. The service is great, fast, polite and efficient. A real French gem in the heart of Geneva. More of a business meeting/lunch restaurant. You will walk out of it with a smile on your face and looking forward to going back again.

The food was very good, and almost everything was handmade. We enjoyed it very much, also due to the very nice people working there and serving the food. Would always recommend it!

This is a very good bistro on the edge a slightly 'red light' area. Don't let that worry you though as the clientele is entirely respectable, varied and animated. But it is probably best approached from the Mont Blanc end of the street. We had a very good meal there with good service in a very animated restaurant at a... More

Good food quality but service a bit patronizing. Good wines and menu. Location is not the best in Geneve.

Once of the in Geneva area, I have been visiting them in about monthly based last 15 years. Perfect typical French food. You should not forget the extensive wine list from France, Italy and Spain

We go for the beef but enjoy all the rest. Delicious food, wonderful warm welcome from the owners and the atmosphere is fun and lively. We do not go out to dinner often as we are very busy but when we want to unwind, Le Boeuf rouge is where we go.

Excellent out of the ordinary food. We had a potted pork starter served with their home made bread and pickles. It was amazing. We ordered a fish entry and a steak and shared. The server recommended a good red wine that was not overly expensive. It was a wonderful last meal before we leave Europe tomorrow.

Great restaurant. Make a great steak and great home cooking. It reminded me a lot of home-cooking (that is a compliment). On the other hand not extremely special. I had expected more based on the previous reviews. This restaurant is very busy probably to the many positive reviews that it receives. Waiters speak English, French, Spanish, Italian and German, and... More
